One of the hardest parts in education for the students is to get the invitation from their teachers. Even without the invitation to education some students will thrive to do well for themselves, educationally and personally. It is theoretically impossible for a teacher to make sure every student gets the necessary push they need. Often times, the students who are struggling with their education will get the necessary push before the students who are succeeding. I know this first-hand how hard it is to get the invitation to education after succeeding most of my educational
However, that is not to say that academics are an afterthought. The teaching of academics is where students can find their passions. In the search for a student’s areas of interest, I believe they are much more likely to pursue a topic if they have a positive belief in themselves. The mental and academic performance of a student go hand-in-hand, which is why, in my opinion, standardized tests are not the answer. The pressure they place on the children, and the educational community at large, can have repercussions that adversely impact the development of the
Many students need to have these classes because it may be their only motivation to stay in school. Teachers are told that they need to have differentiated learning, but that is hard to do when students need to constantly be drilling for math and reading passages. There is only so much differentiation that a teacher can do. With the standardizing of curriculum, the material has become less relevant and students need to be able to see how the material they are learning is going to benefit them in the long run. Kids who are living in poverty need more time, energy, love, and support than upper-class students, and the public school education system is not able to give them that.
Although the common belief is that certain aspects of school are important for an ideal education for all students, the main problems that need to be rectified as soon as possible include the lettered grading system and test scores as the main measure of achievement as well as a lack of disciplined and motivated in teachers who do their jobs correctly in order for their students to reach their full potential and excel in life. Out of all the issues with American education today, one of the most overvalued yet problematic for students is the grades and scores that represent their classroom proficiency and content knowledge. It is true that today, in the United States, the easiest and seemingly most reliable way to track student performance and rank schools by quality of education is by simply marking students based on their scores on assignments and assessments done in school or on standardized exams designed to measure mastery of content, and by comparing and analyzing the
While this helps students become organized and more responsible it can cause many students to be stressed out. Families have to spend money on classes and materials used to prepare for these tests. Students have to balance school work and test prep which from personal experience is very stressful. It is true that these test challenge students to retain information which is a good skill to have but, there are other options besides
Module 3 listed what could factor into the student’s school day which included social, emotional, and economic challenges due to their illness. These students may need more time to get from place to place, more time to rest, and may experience side-effects from medication. Students with intellectual disabilities struggle because of developmental delays which hinder them from interacting with their peers. Consequently, they may show frustration sooner because they have not learned to control their emotions. As a teacher, my job is to be aware of these influences that may hinder my student from learning, so that I can accommodate my teaching to fit the needs of my student, and instead emphasis their
Education has importance in life because it gives people the skills and tools they need to be successful. Reading, writing, calculating, and communicating would not exist without education. People would also not be able to perform jobs competently, accurately and safely. In “America Skips School” by Benjamin R. Barber, Barber believes America needs to get their act together. People need to stop making excuses and calling their problems an “education crisis.” They need to take a stand, make a change, and start caring about education.
In addition to that, the teacher may speak or read too fast for the level of the learner`s understanding. As a result learners suffer from lack of knowledge while all the due requirements at school are provided by the parents such as fees. It therefore implies that while interpersonal communication is vital to teachers, the competence of the teacher may determine the academic progress. Conclusively communicating interpersonally is necessary to a primary school teacher as it enables them to fulfill psychological, social, influential and informative support upon learners and workmates. On the other hand it may also increase cases of child abuse, distort information through gestures and may also be affected by the teacher`s ability to communicate
These days, how ‘well’, and with ‘whom’ we learn is a lot important since we have to use what we learn and interact with various people in the real society after we graduate. We can see that as education is considered highly important, people began to think educationally in various angles. Although education plays a big role like this, some students struggle with their school lives. Also, some parents worry if their children would not fit into traditional education system. ‘Homeschooling’ is an alternative for those people.
This then resulting in a greater reliability of this methods as researches can replicate their findings to apply to multiple schools, on a national scale, this making the method more reliable when studying teacher’s labelling of pupils in school, being favoured more by positivists because interpretivists like in-depth data. However, even though the teachers have to perform to the professional duty, to treat all pupil fairly and correctly, they often give negative labels to pupil, based on the ideas of their social class, gender and ethnicity. This showing a limitation to the reliability if using this method in researching teachers’ labelling because pupils may respond to these label in a variety of ways either in a negative or positive, including forming anti-school subcultures, as Item A refers to. With different responses from the labelling this could be favoured by interpretivists due to them getting a deep understand to the different response the pupils give off from getting labelled. Rosenthal and Jacobson’s research includes a reliability strength of field experiments when studying teacher labelling because it was a simple experiment that could easily repeated.
Often students do not know how to reach out, who to talk to or how to respond to a conflict. For this reason conflicts escalate, even though there are people who are able to train teachers and peers to handle such conflict in healthy way. The traditional school conflict resolution method, where adult decides the outcome for the student is becoming inefficient, so peer mediation provides the student with an opportunity to talk it out and resolve the conflict they. The students see the value n the program, they want to learn how to act when in conflict, beside just with anger and save valuable relationships. This peer mediation program would be effective by reducing violence and fights.
Schools that once faced massive disciplinary problems are now finding more and more students striving to enhance their learning skills. All of the research points to the importance of sustainability, support, and data collection as ways to effectively implement a discipline program such as PBIS in school (Anderson et al., 2010; Cressey et at., 2015; Gonzalez, et al., 2008; Lewis et al., 2002; McIntosh et al., 2013; Safran, 2006; Stoiber & Gettinger, 2011). The unavoidable challenges teachers will face in the upcoming years are astronomical when attempting to manage challenging behaviors in the classroom, especially among younger students. Stoiber and Gettinger (2011) cite that when negative behaviors are left unaltered the behaviors may lead to significant academic, work, and social-emotional difficulties during adolescence and adulthood. In other words, when schools adopt a proactive and efficient approach to intervention, they have been able to pursue other initiatives and further improve the quality of education provided to students (Simonsen et al., 2008).
Educators worried that Common Core assessment in the classroom would take away from instructional time for students. Teachers also wondered if in early education, children would be tested like older children through pencil/paper or computer-driven assessment. Another point brought out by teachers was if results of Common Core assessment would be used for high-stakes including accountability systems for teachers and programs. Lastly, there was the question of whether or not decisions about students, mainly retention in grade, may be based solely on the results of Common Core assessments. To answer these questions, Common Core researchers reminded teachers that assessment is an ongoing process and in order to improve teaching and learning, teachers must continually engage in assessment for the purpose of improving teaching and learning.
This motivates me to become a part of the education field, because caring teachers are much needed in area like this. Teaching is a privilege because it is an opportunity to provide students with a blessing of knowledge that they may not be able to obtain from home. Minorities from low-income areas most likely do not live in the best conditions, therefore they need to utilize the classroom as a safe haven. Knowing that these student probably cannot afford to get a tutor for the SATs or even study properly because they do not understand the context, makes me want to be a teacher who would offer tutoring sessions for free, find
People see that confusion and disorientation as something bad and has always made them uncomfortable and embarrassed, but maybe that might not be a bad thing, according to “Higher Education Through Discombobulation” by Betsy Chitwood. She says that confusion and disorientation leads to a learning process that more people should use because it has help a lot in their learning. She quoted “ Confusion and disorientation are important in the learning process because these emotions force us to go beyond what we know in search of answers”. Having in answer to a problem make us feel great accomplish but knowing that the process will be confusion even frustrated can lead to a better understand and will be harder to forget. And problem that you have
